22Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. (Psalm 55:22)
Drop Your Problems on Jesus!
As I was driving today, a song from a game we once played as a child came to my mind. The latter part of the song says, "T-I-M-E: Time to Drop It." When ever those of us who were playing, got to that part of the song, the game became very, very exciting and joyous.
I do believe that if we heed the words of the latter part of that song, we too would experience such a joy. This joy would be even better than that of the children, if we DROP our burdens off at Jesus' feet. I know that there are many persons globally who always seem to wonder about where they can turn with their burdens. May I hasten to answer that question - TURN TO JESUS.
The Psalmist in penning the passage of scripture in Psalm 55:22 must have had the opportunity to learn for himself that when he casts his burdens on Jesus, he will sustain. I am happy that the Psalmist didn't hold that piece of information to himself, but wrote it so that we all can realize the answer to our problems.
The latter part of the passage under review today, presents a powerful HOPE message. It says. . . ." he shall never suffer the righteous to be MOVED. (Psalm 55:22)"
Thus, I believe I can safely paraphrase and say that once you cast your problems and issues on Jesus, he will not only take care, he will sustain. God simply requires of all of us to live RIGHTEOUS lives and once we make that our aim from today, know for sure that we will be forever standing on the firmest foundation ever.
What a Hope!
